Three and half months post op Hairloss



Recommended Posts

I had my gastric sleeve done one June first, tbh I do not exercise much but I am down 85 pounds. I have noticed an incredible Hair loss and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what to do? I am in Costa Rica so natural ingredients are always preferred.

Any exercise to burn fat and tighten muscle would be appreciated

The prenatal pills r stronger Vitamins. Also u can use Biotin liquid on shakes.also put some inside Shampoo and conditioner bottles also take it in pill form...and do not use the hairbrush. Use your fingers or a big comb for your hair. Congrats on yur weight lost. Good luck)

Sadly, there isn't anything you really can do for your hair. When you start to notice it falling out, that's because your hair has actually started to grow again. Surgery can cause telogen effluvium, this is a higher than normal percentage of your hair going into it's normal rest, your body stops the Hair growth, when your body decides it's time to start growing again, it pushes out the hair that was resting and starts over. This is what accounts for normal daily shedding. But since the surgery caused that normal total follicle count to drastically increase, now you are having WAY more hair shed than normal. The only thing anyone can do at this point is ride it out. Anything you take or do to your hair to try to stop the shedding is really only providing nutrition or support for the new hair, the old hair is toast.

And yes, any exercise is going to help burn fat and tighten muscles.

I had my extensions removed four weeks ago for an unrelated, additional surgery. My hair began falling out about two weeks ago! My hair dresser has been keeping an eye on it for me as we’ve adjusted the extensions since May. Since I have super fine, shoulder length hair, we pretty much just have to take it up to ear or chin length and ride it out for a year or so, I guess. If she thinks it will handle extensions now, we’ll put them in but it looks/feels like I only have about six hairs left right now! ;)
